I want to be able to set text in another window TextBox or RichTextBox
For example: If i want to do this in a regular VB Form i do it like these...

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Text1.SelText = " Experts exchange"
End Sub

Of course this is just something simple in a textbox
But what i realy need is to set it in another window like NetMeeting or Windows Messenger.

Call SendMessageByString(windowmessenger, WM_SETTEXT, .SelText = " Some Text Here")
